Not to turn this blog into my personal diary or anything, but I just have to say I’m really excited about how nicely my Sontag is growing in. If you haven’t the slightest of what I’m talking about, The Sontag (a.k.a. Shooting Star) is the streak of grey hair starting at the temple that many women develop, named for writer, critic and feminist Susan Sontag. I started getting grey hair when I was seventeen, and after an initial panic attack and a lot of tacky jokes about walkers and orthopoedic shoes, I am now stoked to be counted among the “prematurely” silver.
For those of you who aren’t lucky enough to be sprouting salt-n-pepa yet, curb your jealousy - Toronto artist Paige Gratland can supply you with your very own Sontag, as part of her “Feminist Hair Wear” project.
